Statoil has reached agreement on the terms of the sale of Statoil Ireland, its downstream Retail and Commercial & Industrial business, to Topaz, a financial consortium led by Ion Equity. Topaz is an established national forecourt retailer, based in Dublin, which acquired the Shell Ireland service station network in 2005. It operates a network of over 150 service stations under the Shell brand.

To celebrate its move to the Gleaner brand, Skiach Services in Scotland has been giving away free fuel. In conjunction with Moray Firth radio, the forecourt ran three ’Free Fuel Fridays’ where it gave away fuel from one pump for half an hour.
